The food was delicious

We celebrated my wife's birthday at Bell's last night, the food was delicious, the atmosphere warm and friendly, and the service from the staff was excellent. Please pass on our thanks for a lovely evening. Warm regards Tom.

It was just beautiful

We stayed on the weekend of 27-28 April and it was just beautiful. My husband and I are both vegetarian and we were thrilled to be able to enjoy the degustation menu at the Restaurant on the evening we arrived. It was fantastic to have a unique and delicious vegetarian menu with so many things to try, a very rare experience for vegetarians when dining. The location is gorgeous, beautiful gardens and roomy cosy cottages. The bushland setting was perfect for us to explore and we really enjoyed the vegetarian picnic bag that was packed for us. The only comment is that the bread rolls could have been a touch softer, but they were delicious and we had more than enough to cover two walks and two beach picnics. Thank you for the wonderful experience, it made our special occasion perfect.

What a wonderful job your young staff did

Hi Brian and Karina, I just wanted to write and let you know what a wonderful job your young staff did at the Gilbert wedding on Sunday 11th March. I was so impressed with their attitude of helpfulness. Nothing was too much trouble. They were all friendly and very polite. I just haven't experienced young adults like them before in the hospitality industry. So well done! They obviously enjoy and appreciate their jobs. Stan and Kathy

Most memorable 40th wedding anniversary luncheon

Just wanted to send you and the team a heartfelt 'thank-you' for a most memorable 40th wedding anniversary luncheon. A magical setting where adults and children alike could feel relaxed yet spoiled. The food was delicious, the service excellent - we shall long sing the praises of Bells - a lovely day, thank you to all concerned and we have some beautiful photographs to remind us of our very special day.

Kindest regards Adrienne

Thank you

Hello, We write to thank you for a splendid night last Wednesday which we spent at Bells at Killcare. There was nothing that we were disappointed in, accommodation, meals and service were first class. Thank you. We would like to say staff impressed us with their friendliness and helpfulness but would like to make special mention of Heidi and Shelley who waited on our table in the restaurant. They are two very pleasant and lovely young ladies and a credit to your establishment. Please pass on our appreciation to them. We would not hesitate in recommending Bells to our friends and do hope one day to return. With our best wishes and sincere thanks. Julie and Perce.

We loved Bells

Dave and I just returned from Bells and Pretty Beach House. Well, what can I say…? We loved Bells; a Hamptons meets Ralph Lauren experience, if I ever wanted my own little seaside cottage I know where to go, it brought back a bit of England with the beautiful hampers and the smell of wafting bacon in the morning coming from other guests homes! Manfredi’s cuisine was fabulous, catwalk stars of the sea and turf graced our plates until we waddled back to our cottage... I do believe that Pretty Beach has ruined us forever, I may have lacked the grace of departing easily wanting to stay for another hour, another day or maybe never leave! The staff made us feel like a family, and balanced host and friend with grace whilst the treetops pavilion made the city grind disappear. We were there for only 48hrs yet it will leave an impression of a lifetime.

What a wonderful experience!

What a wonderful experience! My meal could not have been more delicious! The gorgeous lemony, buttery smashed potato with delicate, sweet scallops was just too much. Potato is my ultimate comfort food and these were just the best, I am sure I was making a “when Harry met Sally face” by the time I finished my last buttery mouthful. Thank you!

Making our 25th Anniversary & Christmas function so successful

Dear Deb, Just a quick note to say thank you and the restaurant staff at Bells for making our 25th Anniversary & Christmas function so successful. Everyone commented on the quality of the meals, the wines and the courtesy shown by every staff member. The venue was fantastic and already some of the members are planning to dine with you again.

Once again, my sincere thanks and may I wish you a very happy and safe Christmas on behalf of the committee and all the members of the Wamberal Probus Club. With kind regards, Ray Ramsay
